Ideal Results for Hip & Knee Doctors
Hip pain and knee pain injuries are common lower extremity issues, commonly caused by sports injuries. Conditions of the lower extremity are common and require specialized care. The lower extremity does most of our weight bearing and the joint surfaces are vulnerable to wear and tear in adults. Examples of injuries to the lower extremity include ankle sprains, ACL tears, and muscle contusions. If you are experiencing foot issues, you can find more information on our site and contact our foot doctors today.
Knee Surgery & Hip Surgery
If you've had hip surgery or knee surgery, physical therapy should be part of your rehabilitation plan. The joints and muscles in our lower extremity work together to form a "kinetic chain". A kinetic chain is a series of joints and muscles working in perfect harmony to produce complex actions such as walking and running. In fact, the human body itself is a complex set of systems, and like any system, it has its limits. When one of the joints or muscles in this system is injured, the whole kinetic chain will malfunction.
When considering a rehabilitation program of a single joint or muscle it is incredibly crucial to develop a program that incorporates the entire kinetic chain. It is not uncommon for our physical therapists to apply treatment techniques to the hip in a patient who sustained a knee or ankle injury. At Dynamic Physical Therapy, we excel at developing individualized programs that incorporate these concepts. By doing so, we achieve optimal results for our patients and reduce the likelihood of re-injury.
